I decided to wake up early this morning. Well, I didn't really "decide" to, but I couldn't fall back asleep. It was 6:30 AM.

This is early for me.

So I tossed and turned for a twenty minutes or so and then finally decided that falling back asleep and sleeping until 10:00 AM was a lost cause.

After a thinking about what my plans were going to be for the rest of the day...since I now have the WHOLE day to do things, I got out of bed, made my bed (this is also a first in a long time), and went upstairs.

The first person I saw - my mom. "What are you doing up so early?" she said.

I told her my dilemma about not being able to fall back asleep. Her conclusion: "You're finally on a normal sleep schedule."

The next person I saw - my sister-in-law. She gave me a funny look- "You're up early."

"Yep," I said.

My niece Caitlyn and my nephew Billy were the only ones not to give me grief this morning.

I decided to start my day early. I know this is really out of character for me, but in the realm of things, this is not the weirdest thing that I've done.

Then I went on my run, came back and stretched and stuff, saw my sister - "Did you already run?" she asked me.

I sat on the floor with my shirt pooled with sweat and my hair looking like I dunked my head in water, and thought to myself No, this is what I look like when I wake up in the morning. "Yeah," I said. (Kyrstin was pretty groggy this morning, so I felt my sarcasm would only make her crabby)

After my shower I went back downstairs and my nephew Connor screamed, because I was in a towel. Little does he know that he will soon love ladies in only towels. (Just not his relatives).

I ran into my dad and he said, "Super Kinsey's awake."

Yes, yes, yes, Super Kinsey is awake and ready to take on whatever this Monday is going to bring her.


  1. Lol, now go up there and have fun. I know I won't since you saw my Monday schedule.

  2. If you ever feel bad about not making your bed, just tell yourself, "I'm going to be right back in it in a few hours." This works for me on those lazy days. It also works on those days that I wake up after 11 and wonder why I should get out of bed.... Hope you have a nice rest-of-the-day Monday!

  3. Super Kinsey. I like that, has a nice ring to it. I wish I could get back in the habit of going to bed early and getting up in time to work out before work, but I don't have the motivation/energy anymore.

  4. I can picture everything you just described!

  5. Sounds like a wonderfully productive, well-spent and positive morning! If only I wasn't so groggy in the mornings, I might be able to do the same :D

  6. Yup, she was up that early! At first I thought something must be wrong:)She then asked me, "Do you ALWAYS get up this early?" My reply was, "I have to." But to be honest, if I didn't have to get up at 6:30 a.m. I wouldn't--but I still probably couldn't sleep much later than 8:00.
    Truth is, you get a lot more done when you have a few more hours in the day:)

  7. Yes, I was groggy and crabby this morning. The crabbiness finally disappeared around 4:30. I am proud of you for getting up and going for a run so early!!

  8. hahaha! That's how we react when my hubby wakes up early :)
